Mike. 27-year-old Wisconsin born-and-raised, working as a sports editor at a media group in Fond du Lac.
Probably not wearing pants.
Trying to become a little more awesome every day.
I love movies, rock music, Brett Favre and my Wisconsin sports teams (Packers, Badgers, Brewers). You'll see a lot of each on here.
Some of my favorite bands include: Halestorm, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, Trapt, Chevelle, Paramore, Sevendust, Disturbed, Flyleaf, Led Zeppelin and E.S. Posthumus
I totally forgot to mention that probably my favorite scene in Captain America 2 was the early fight scene with Georges St. Pierre on the boat.
The argument can be made that GSP is the greatest fighter in the history of the UFC, and he’s one of my favorite athletes.
Yet somehow, I had no idea he was going to be in this movie. So the first few times he was on screen, I was like, ‘wait, wait, is that GSP?!’
It wasn’t until they started fighting that I knew it was him, and that gave me a big smile throughout the fight scene.
I just have to make it through the next 24 hours and then a 4-day mini-vacation starts as I’m off Friday until Tuesday afternoon.
Karissa and I are spending Saturday and Sunday in Chicago, doing all sorts of touristy things. We’re going to be winging it for the most part, but there’s a number of things we want to check out: Shedd Aquarium, Lincoln Park Zoo, the Bean, Hancock Building Skydeck, History Museum, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and we’re doing a river and lake architectural cruise (weather permitting). I highly doubt we’ll have time to do all of it, but we have plenty to choose from.
We’ll probably be hanging out mostly around the north side, so if anyone has any suggestions of anything we should check out, places for good cheap food or bars to hit up at night, feel free to let me know.
The high temperatures in Chicago Saturday and Sunday will be 45 and 54, with a 50% chance of rain Sunday.
Dick move, Mother Nature. Dick move.
